NTR card, the full name is NTRboothax compatible flashcart. These flash cards are including most of R4 carts and in the end of 2017, many R4 flashcard teams produce new R4 cards with NTRboot compatibility. NTRboothax, it’s our newest and easiest 3ds exploit to use for installing Boot9strap(upgarded version of AL9) and CFW. For using the NTRboot exploit and a maget to hack 3DS for CFW, we even have no need to downgrade a 3ds firmware or use another hacked 3ds console. So in 2018, if you want to install a custom firmware to any 3DS, just choose the NTRboot method. You can know more from here.

Also, I list here the hot to buy and easy to use NTR flashcarts. They are all with pre-flashed NTRboothax, and can be reversed to play NDS games by an easy method. The most-recommended one is Ace3ds X, it has a outer button for switching from NTR to DS mode, at the same time, its price is the highest too.

  • Ace3ds X
  • R4i sdhc b9s

Why to choose an NTR card for cracking 3DS/2DS/NEW 3DS/2DS XL V11.7? Because you can play free ds games and install CFW easily via using them. Then after getting a CFW on 3DS, you can do a lot of things, for exmple, play 3ds games in CIA format and install freeeshop to download and play eshop 3ds games.

The only con for choosing NTRboot cart is they are not that easy to use as an R4 card or a 3ds flashcard, you have to take more steps and cost more time to setup them and any of them isn’t playing 3ds game directly. This 3ds 11.7 hacking method is not suitable for a 3ds newbie or a child.
